Meet Marjo from Finland
A little bit of her life and journey below.
Go here for more of her story :
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Marjo and I am married and we have 3 children together.
I am from Finland and my native language is Finnish.
I was baptized in 2002 and I left from Jehovah Witnesses in 2008.
The reason why I left was that I didn't get support from the congregation when it was needed.
My mother was also a Witness, but she left first. I was very alone in those moments.
When the elder told me that my mother is no longer a Witness
I began to cry. That was the only moment when someone was there for me.
No one ever asked me after that how I was, or have I got over this.
Not even elders didn't come to see me and ask how I was doing after this.
That is when I began to fade away. Then I met my husband in the same job.
Then leaving from Witnesses was easy.
Then I just e-mailed to one elder that I don't want to be a Witness anymore.
There is little of my history from Witness times. I also couldn't stand that dress code.
Now I follow Yeshua only and read the Bible.
I love different cultures and languages. So it is nice to meet new people from all over the world.
Maybe we can learn something from each other 🙂
